Image Reconstruction for a Partially Collimated Whole Body PET Scanner

Adam M. Alessio; Ruth E. Schmitz; Lawrence R. MacDonald; Scott D. Wollenweber; Charles W. Stearns; Steven G. Ross; Alex Ganin; Thomas K. Lewellen; Paul E. Kinahan IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 2008

Partially collimated PET systems have less collimation than conventional 2-D systems and have been shown to offer count rate improvements over 2-D and 3-D systems. Despite this potential, previous efforts have not established image- based improvements with partial collimation and have not customized the reconstruction method for partially collimated data. This work presents an image reconstruction method tailored for partially ...


Performance of the Advanced Photon Source (APS) linac beam position monitors (BPMs) with logarithmic amplifier electronics

R. E. Fuja; M. White Proceedings Particle Accelerator Conference, 1995

This paper discusses the performance of the logarithmic amplifier electronics system used with stripline BPMs to measure electron and positron beam positions at the APS linac. The 2856-MHz, S-band linac accelerates 30-nsec pulses of 1.7 A of electrons to 200 MeV, and focuses them onto a positron conversion target. The resulting 8 mA of positrons are further accelerated to 450 ...


Fusiform Activation to Animals is Driven by the Process, Not the Stimulus

Timothy T. Rogers; Julia Hocking; Andrea Mechelli; Karalyn Patterson; Cathy Price Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, 2005

Previous studies have found that the lateral posterior fusiform gyri respond more robustly to pictures of animals than pictures of manmade objects and suggested that these regions encode the visual properties characteristic of animals. We suggest that such effects actually reflect processing demands arising when items with similar representations must be finely discriminated. In a positron emission tomography (PET) study ...


Measuring the non-proportional response of scintillators using a Positron Emission Tomography scanner

Harold E. Rothfuss; John W. Young; John E. Breeding; Lars A. Eriksson; Stefan B. Siegel; Michael E. Casey; Charles L. Melcher 2012 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference Record (NSS/MIC), 2012

A novel way of measuring the non-proportional response of scintillation materials, using a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanner, has been developed and tested. Using a Siemens Biograph mCT, a modified Compton coincidence technique is performed where the Compton scatter angular information data is collected by taking advantage of the fine angular sampling that is inherent to the PET scanner. Using ...
